A Closer Look at Performance and Security Updates to AIX 7.2 

With each new release and each new TL, AIX users get more features and greater functionality. The OS, although superficially similar to AIX 4.3.3 or 5.3, has undergone many improvements to get us to AIX 7.2, yet IBM has done so in such a way to be minimally disruptive to the platform’s long-time administrators and users.

AIX expert Rob McNelly outlines updates to AIX 7.2 in this article.

POWER9 Hardware Supports On-premises Cloud Deployments 

Either by regulations (e.g., HIPAA or PCI DSS) or by business sense, some types of workloads simply aren’t well-suited for the public cloud. Yet, organizations that face those data-security challenges don’t have to forego the scalability and accessibility afforded by cloud deployments. Instances of the private cloud allow clients to retain control over their data, while retaining its inherent flexibility.

Private cloud deployments require the right infrastructure—and the IBM POWER9* processor is designed with that type of workload in mind.
